Looking to change from JDL turf products. Opinions needed!!

We have been using JDL fert product for many years with decent success. I feel that the product does not break down properly and get into the soil as it should and lawns are not as green as they could be in my oipinion. We use their basic program with 2 steps of Dimension in the spring and use Speedzone and Q4 mostly for any breakthru. I just feel a finer particle product would serve us better. I am in southern mass so what other dealers and products should we look into for better performance. Any info is greatly appreciated.

I emailed several manufacturers asking for their sales rep contact in my area and if they had distributors around me. Most replied or called me back pretty quickly; I now have several options for purchasing my products.

I switch from JDL to Agrium a couple of years ago. Been happy with the products and pricing.

Look for fertilizer manufacturers. I have some I know of here in GA but fert is pretty much fert in my opinion. N P K and some Fe is only what matters to me.
